President Muhammadu Buhari is presently meeting with governors to discuss the state of the nation with the nagging unpaid salaries of civil servants top of the bill.
On his official Twitter account, Buhari wrote that he was presently meeting with governors although details of the meeting was not given. “@MBuhari is currently meeting Governors from all the states in Abuja,” he wrote.
It would be recalled that Buhari agreed to meet governors over the huge salaries and allowances owed workers. “The President has graciously accepted our overtures to him to help us. Some of us are owing workers over nine months salary arrears and this has brought activities in the public service to a standstill. We hope the President helps this time,” a top government official in Osun State, one of the worst hit states said.
Salaries owed to state workers are estimated at N110 billion.
